So I am, um, a little hard on my phones.


This wasn’t the first time I have done this.

I have gone through a total of 5 phones in the last 4 years. Not kidding. They have been dropped, soaked in water or coffee, even DEEP FRIED one once. Yep. I was texting my sister while making dinner one night and my phone slipped out of my hand and plopped straight into hot oil. So while not much could save a deep-fried phone, I do have a lifesaver for all of the other stuff. And hey, maybe “deep-fried phone” is a delicacy somewhere…

I am happy to have the Otterbox Armor on my phone. I have already dropped my phone several times. In water even. And my lovely iPhone is as pristine as the day I got it.


The iPhone 4/4S Armor Series case offers four layers of protection so you can enjoy life’s adventures with confidence knowing your iPhone 4/4S is shielded from the elements. Waterproof, drop proof, dust proof and crush proof the Armor Series is the toughest case ever built. Get protection that truly inspires confidence.

The Otterbox Armor claims to be the “toughest case ever built”. I thought “we will see about that..” Sure, it can handle the rigors of an active outdoor expeditionist or construction-working/boating/cyclist/superhero, but can it survive preschoolers? I put it to the test…

Check out how I torture my Otterbox in the video below…

Happy to say that YES. It has survived. It survived dead drops on concrete, a throw across the parking lot, even a dip into the kiddie pool. With flying colors 🙂

  • WATERPROOF – Up to 30 min down 6.6ft
  • CRUSHPROOF – Can withstand 2 tons of pressure
  • DROPPROOF – Up to 10 feet on concrete
  • DUSTPROOF – 0% dust or debris inside
